Not Christmasy but fine

Maybe it's a retirement thing or maybe it's just me but I'm kind of annoyed with Christmas.  I don't like stuff being closed.  That whole pool thing yesterday was a mess and I'm guessing it will stay that way until after New Years.  TV is all reruns or schmaltzy.  But, I'm only mildly annoyed.  I'll get over it.

Dinner last night was ok.  The restaurant was really loud and our waitress had the most irritating voice.  She kept coming by asking if we had any questions.  We did not have one - all night and after a while we started feeling inadequate about the whole question thing.  Ron and Ann weren't too bad.  They have a tendency towards bigoted language but they kept it at a minimum last night.  

Tonight Ron is making prime rib plus he always has amazingly delicious and gorgeous side dishes and good hor d'oeuvres.  And it's just down the hall.  And their son and daughter in law will be there and they are generally better behaved with daughter in law around.  So it will be all right.

Today I'm doing laundry and watching the rain.  I don't think it's too many degrees away from snow, actually and snow would be way prettier.  But, what.ever.

I think I'll make myself some brunch.

Too old for the laser

Betty used to frolic to the Bolt laser toy nearly every time I turned it on and now, not so much.  Ron and Ann were talking about my cats  last night and asked how old Betty was.  She is 12 in human years which is 70 in cat years.  I often wonder if our remaining runway is about the same length.

She's still chipper, eats like a hog, follows me everywhere and is generally on duty at all times.  

And, heck, Travis was only 6 when he died.  So who knows, indeed.
